sub contractors at Plant Vogtle
« Reply #25 on: Jun 07, 2009, 11:34 »
 Would anyone happen to have any info on any sub contractors working or preparing to do work at Plant Vogtle. I have been laid off for about two months and need to go to work. I only live about 30 minutes from the site.  I do know that SHAW is the general contractor and I have applied for a couple different jobs with them.

Good friend of mine is SRO out there and said they should be getting ready within the next few months to get underway.  Hope that helps some.

I noticed on a recent construction status update for Vogtle 3 & 4 that Southern Co is conducting "pre-training" for Operators at Augusta Tech.  Does anyone know if this is something that's done for "new hires," or a tool used to screen potential applicants?  I've heard rumors that a 2-year NET Associate's Degree was in the works at Augusta Tech, but have seen nothing official listed on their website - not sure if these things are related. Any info is appreciated.

Hiring Process
« Reply #32 on: Feb 28, 2012, 05:39 »
I have an interview schedule here and would like any insight into the job of  Nuclear Plant Operator in Training (Reactor Operator, AP 1000). Also I was told there would be a POSS and Profile XT exam. The POSS I found helpful materials on, but the Profile XT nothing. Any help on either one of those would be nice as well. I really am trying to contact anyone who might currently work there to get a feel for the area and environment. Thanks in advance.

I interviewed for a (SRO)SSS-IT position late last year. I wasn't selected, but I'll let you know about my experience. I have no idea of your background, I was a Navy nuke. The POSS is pretty easy. It's all about speed, the concepts aren't too difficult to grasp. The ProfileXT is also fairly simple. It's similar to a psych exam. Most of the questions asked how you feel about something. The last part of the exam had a few problem solving questions, similar to what you would see on the math section of the POSS. 

The area is nice and quiet. Nothing much in Waynesboro, but Augusta has plenty to offer. Savannah, Charleston, and Atlanta are close enough for a weekend getaway. Be prepared to lose your phone signal around the plant, most of us interviewing didn't have signal. I forgot already, but I think Sprint or Verizon is the only carrier with enough signal around that area.

Good Luck!

It does work fine in the area, just not at the actual site. Verizon is the only real carrier option. They just installed a new repeater as well to help. Also, Southern has it's own cell service, SouthernLinc, which works as well.

I am scheduled to take the POSS test for a system operator in training position for Plant Vogtle this week. If selected and I do take this job I will be walking away from another Nuclear field job I have held at SRS the past 5 years. Someone please throw out some great selling points for me to pursue this position. The base pay is already around 3,000 more yearly than what I would make now so including how fast after training you can jump up your pay would be a big plus as well. The drawbacks right now are that it is about twice as far for me to drive to work and I have absolutely no idea about their benifits/ retirement. Feel free to dump as much info on me that you want. I want to make the best decision for the future going forward and am really excited about the opportunity if selected.

If you can make it into commercial power, you will wonder how you ever put up with DOE life.  In my experience,  commercial work is always more entertaining and rewarding, the attitudes are usually more positive, and the level of boredom significantly reduced. A longer commute is a small price to pay for the increased job satisfaction you will experience.

Good luck!  :)

Thanks for the insight and encouragement. I have already discussed it with my wife and if offered the position I am definitely going to take it. I really enjoyed my time in the nuclear Navy and would have not gotten out then if not for the horrible marriage I was trying to save then. I will keep my fingers crossed that this is going to be my opportunity to get back into nuclear power. [thanks]

I guess that I may have to accept the fact that I am not going to be called in to interview for a position despite passing the POSS test. I could not imagine that it would go this long before interviews were scheduled and it seems that there is no one with insight on if they have already happened. I can hope that with the completion of the new reactors at Vogtle they may seek to fill more positions in the future and I have already passed my POSS and could perhaps get an interview.  ::)

I got an email on January tenth stating I was no longer under consideration for the position. I really wished I could have at least been selected for an interview. I heard from another applicant who knows people at the site that there was a large number of internal applicants. Hopefully there will be more postings for this job in the future since there are two new reactors under construction. I am a little disheartened that I did not get it this time around but will probably still be here looking when they hire again.  :(

Hello all,

On 07/11/16 I took the POSS test in Augusta as the first step towards hopefully being a SOIT for Vogtle Units 3&4...The job posting I submitted to stated that the class would start in October.  Have any fellow applicants heard back yet about interviews or do any employees have any insight into where Southern is currently at in the hiring process?

I am in the same position as you. I took the test for Exelon and did not need to retest, and HR mentioned my resume would be included in the pool of applicants. I have not heard anything back yet. Keep in mind the last POSS exam was on 07/19/2016, which was just a week ago. If I don't hear anything back by this Friday (07/29/2016), I'm going to assume I didn't get the interview.


From my previous experience interviewing with Southern Nuclear, I got an email asking to complete a background check prior to the interview. Apparently that background check email is a precursor to the interview. So, if that email comes, you definitely will have an interview.
